The Technology, Colleges and Community Worldwide Online Conference (TCC Online Conference) is a virtual, professional development event held online annually. This event enables faculty, staff, students and administrators in higher education worldwide to share their expertise, network and engage in discussions about innovations and practices related to the use of technology for teaching and learning.
TCC runs on a real-time schedule, with starting and ending dates and times. It includes live plenary, concurrent, and discussion sessions that begin and end at set times throughout the day. The conference theme focuses on current trends and issues related to innovational use of technology for learning and teaching.
To participate, use a computer or mobile device with a web browser to access online sessions from the comfort of your home, office, or wherever a broadband (wi-fi) connection is available. Live sessions are held in ZOOM. Participants receive daily email updates of special features and plenary sessions.
